Carson Palmer to Arizona?

I see where the Raiders are in talks with Seattle for quarterback Matt Flynn.

If that happens, I would almost want to see general manager Reggie McKenzie run off for good.

Rumor says Carson Palmer, current Raiders quarterback is going to be released after refusing to take a pay cut from $13 million to $10 million. Seems Palmer isn’t too happy about hearing he’ll have to compete for his starting job with former 3rd round pick and Ohio State dropout Terrelle Pryor. He has to be even less happy to see Oakland’s offseason bloodletting. Oakland just released defensive lineman Tommy Kelly, the Raiders longest tenured position player. They’ve already released starters Kelly, Richard Seymour, Heyward-Bey and Michael Huff. Its obvious the Raiders are looking to do a full rebuild and they don’t need those players taking up big parts of the cap.

I don’t know if Palmer really wants to play the niners, Seasquawks and Rams twice a year. That sounds like a recipe for failure.

In my opinion, the Raiders look to turn the corner in 2015. By that time, they shoulsd have pretty much a turned-over roster. Don’t know if coach Dennis Allen is going to be around for that turnaround.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
